Ella Sutherland: Slow Seeing and Attention to Make
10 Dec 2016 – 02 Apr 2017
Over 2017 The Dowse Window will feature a series of graphic design projects that critically engage with this site as a point of communication and display.
Ella Sutherland has worked with The Dowse Art Museum posters that were made between the 1970s and 1990s, removing the exhibition text and images but retaining the specific graphic design elements. The visual language or fundamental rules of design—aspects such as line, rhythm, movement, balance, pattern and framing—are used to analyse the voice of the institution through looking at the changes in typography over time.
